On Monday, Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called on Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif, where the two sides exchanged views on political situation of the country.


Meanwhile, PPP leaders in a press conference have said that PPP can make alliance with any party according to the prevailing political situation.

Maula Baksh Chandio and Nafisa Shah said that the present puppet government defaming the state institutions, and instead of easing the public creating new problems for them.

“Parliament is a solution to all the problems, anyone who come into power becomes an angel, and when left the government becomes the enemy of the country, on the name of accountability, the political revenge is under process”, they added.

PPP’s Central Secretary Information Nafisa Shah said that the party was commemorating 11th death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto. She said that their slained leader gave huge sacrifices for this country and stood fast against dictatorship.


Federal Minister for Railways Shiekh Rashid Ahmed on Tuesday claimed that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo is seeking an NRO for his daughter Maryam Nawaz from powers that be while Zardari is not interested in any deal for Bilawal.

Speaking in Rawalpindi, the federal minister said that there will be a crackdown against the looters before March 2020.

“Even after March if they manage to escape then only God can save Pakistan,” he said. “The nation voted for Imran Khan for accountability against the looters. Those stole national resources are traitors.”

Rashid said that economic crisis is the prime issue of the country, and the reason behind it is the presence of ‘vultures’ in the political structure of the country.

“Those who looted Pakistan are being respected and no one cares for those who gave sacrifices for the country. But the nation now knows who is a thief. And they know they are carting protocol,” he added.

The railway minister said that case should be registered against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on the attack against Samaa’s cameraperson.

“They only think about themselves. And leave people stranded. They know that they have become unpopular so they are using their thugs to attack people,” he said.

Rashid appealed Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of the case.
